Dear Jake
It may be a dermatitis or even a fungal infection - you can try something like Fissan paste on the area, wash with water and soap after passing stool and pat dry. Avoid irritating food like curry/peppers. If the itchiness persists, see your GP for an examination to see if you need antifungal treatment.
